The race area contains 30 Concept 2 rowing machines electronically linked together.
Competitor lists detailing which machine each competitor should use for their race are posted at various locations throughout the venue. Please ensure you know which ergo you have been assigned to and check with a Race Marshall before entering the race area. Only competitors are permitted in the race area, there will be a spectator seating area at the venue. You will be given time before the race to set up your machine and adjust the drag factor, BUCS athletes will have to follow BUCS rules for their drag factor.
Just before the race starts you will be asked to “Put down your handle”. This allows the flywheel to stop and the race software to synchronise the machines. You will then be asked to “Pick up your handle”. There will then be a countdown as follows...3...2...1...ROW. This will be displayed on the machine display. Do not start to row before “ROW” or you will be charged with a false start.
Race Marshalls will be on hand if you require any assistance.
During the race as well as the usual data (time, distance, split etc) you will be able to see your progress in relation to the other competitors in the race. Spectators will also be able to track your progress via a large screen located at the front of the race area. When you finish your race, place your handle carefully back in its holder. As the handle is attached to the bungee, letting go can cause damage to the machine. Competitors doing so deliberately may be disqualified and will be liable for any damage caused.
Teams will be asked to confirm the names of competitors at registration. A single race slip will be issued at registration to each team competing in team events. Any substitutions must be detailed on this race slip. Teams will not be permitted access to the race area without a valid race slip.
If required a classification schedule will be communicated to you separately.
